I am a native Texan who remembers when Texas always voted Democrat,
and wishes it still did. This is home, but I find myself thinking
more and more about going somewhere a bit more open-minded. So far,
the Austin oasis has kept me here.
I prefer outside to inside, quiet dinners to crazy parties, fiction
to nonfiction, books to ebooks, driving to flying, and beer to
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as an arborist for a small tree-care company. I take my dogs
for walks, eat out, watch netflix, read, play guitar and piano

I like detective/crime fiction (Chandler, Hammett, Rehder,
Lansdale, Abbott) and novels (McCarthy, McMurtry, Faulkner,
Morrison, Bird) mostly. The higher it went on the bestseller list,

Netflix saved movies for me. The theaters got more expensive while

I like most kinds of music when done well, but lean toward jazz and
rock. Los Lobos is probably my current favorite band. Other
favorites include Funkadelic, Zeppelin, Fishbone, Thelonious Monk.
I haven't heard any new bands I like in a long time. I guess that
means I'm getting old.
I was pretty strictly vegetarian for years, but the rising
availability of natural, free-range meat has tempted me off the
wagon. I am still mostly vegetarian. I like Mex/Tex-Mex, Indian,
Thai, Italian, BBQ.
